DEFEND THE NIGHT
There is no beginning. There is no end. There is only now and of that, we can’t be certain.
Defend the Night is a dark fantasy MMORPG with a challenging, return to classic, gameplay that will keep you on the edge of your seat. In the dangerous world of Certovia, power demands to be earned—not bought. As a result, skill and knowledge will be key to surpassing your opposition. Defend the Night will feature some traditional RPG classes; character progression through leveling, ability, talent acquisition; and player-owned city development. Players will be able to head out into the darkness of the world, either solo or with a group of friends, and level through a variety of options, both PvE and PvP. Choose the leveling path that works for you, without being forced into a specific style of play or linear progression, in this sandbox-style MMO
Races & Classes
There are currently 11 announced classes in the game. These classes we definitely love the look of, they have a classic range of classes that generally are fun classes to play and are known by most players who have ever played an MMO before.
The classes currently listed are: Assassin, BattleMage, Cleric, Druid, Enchanter, Necromancer, Paladin, Ranger, Shadow Knight, Warrior & Wizard. Underneath the list is also a section for Unannounced where they have plans to name further classes.
The 4 races currently announced are: Humans, Rel’Goth (a demon kind style of race), Alfar (no information yet on this one but we assume it is going to be an elf style of race) and the 4th race is the Half Orcs.
